No nationally televised games tonight? C'mon ESPN...

Postby WittyC » Tue Apr 04, 2006 4:35 pm

Seriously, I just realized this and about lost it. <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif> I'm sure there is some contractual obligation, but it's the first week! ESPN should be airing a couple games tonight.

It's just a crappy situation... MLBtv sucks because I'm blacked out six -- that's right, SIX -- teams, and I can't get DirecTV because my apartment complex won't allow dishes.

Has anyone ever tried using IP-masking software to watch MLBtv? I'm giving this some serious consideration... :-?

If you have digital cable, you get the free preview of MLB Extra Innings until the 9th.

I've been loving that the last 2 days. :-D Although they didn't show the Cardinals game and skipped the first hour of the Astros game(I had Oswalt going). :-t

No kidding. Halladay vs. Santana would be great to find.

Really. Witty aren't you in Iowa? The idea of getting blacked out of any game in Iowa is absurd. Which teams are they? Cubs, White Sox, Twins, Brewers, Cards, and Royals?

I have to agree here. I'm quite surprised ESPN or even ESPN2 isn't showing a game tonight. Weird. :-?
